COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is made in the pumpkin beer tradition, except instead of pumpkins we used yams, and lots of them! A big Belgian-style brown ale of 10% ABV, this one is bringing pumpkin beers (or yam beers) into new territory.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 tasting sample. pours a dark brown with a small off white head... pumpkin, spice, nutmeg nose... medium round body with more spice, cinnamon and some malt... the use of yams is quite unique... and there was a touch of sweet potato in there... didnít really pick up on the 10%... great sweet blended finish of all of the above... a true meal in a bottle... excellent fall / thanksgiving beer from a great start up brewery.

Pumpkin color with an off-white head. Sweet aroma of yams. Sweet flavor as well with maple, a touch of spice, vanilla and caramel. Unique and enjoyable.

Goodgrief (1762) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - OCT 18, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2010 Dark brown pour, little to no head. It smells...um...like candied yams, believe it or not. Itís sweet...really sweet...but a nice spicy finish that makes it quite palatable. Itís better than a pumpkin ale, Iíll give it that. Still not really my thing...but definitely worth a try for itís uniqueness. I sorta liked it, for what it was.

750ml bottle. pours a deep amber under a small off-white head. pumpkin, bubblegum, clove aroma. flavor has lots of pink bubblegum notes. not as spicy as a typical pumpkin beer. bready. sweeter and less spicy. i donít really get any distinctive "yaminess"(not sure what to look for either). the 10% is hidden for the most part. medium body.

Bottled. Slight hazy color, no head. Aroma of some strange vegetable, bit clove, some malt. Sweet taste, bit fllowery. Ginger, clove? I guess it were yams then.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle from Oak tree. Pours out a slightly cloudy with a thin off white head. Aroma of dried fruits, cinnamon, yams, slight maple syrup and a little booze. Taste is complex and develops as it warms up, spices, dark fruits, maple, earth, yam, yeast and slight booze comes through too. A very interesting idea, and rather well done, but for having maple on the label, I would have liked to tasted more maple.
